AFC Leopards’ winger positive after Bidvest Wits trials

Paul Were, who returned to the country last Friday, and featured for Ingwe in their barren draw against Ulinzi, is confident of joining the South African club

AFC Leopards’ winger Paul Were remains hopeful that he will get the opportunity to play for South African Premier League outfit Bidvest Wits after his week-long trials.

The speedy winger returned to the country last Friday and featured for Ingwe in their barren draw against Ulinzi Stars on Sunday.

“I am waiting for them to communicate with my agent but I am hoping for the best. I worked hard there and gave my best and I know the fruits of hard work will pay,” Were told Goal.

Were revealed that he has now turned his attention into helping AFC Leopards’ do well in Caf Confederation Cup, where they face South African side Supersport United in the first leg first round this weekend.

“We have a good chance to do well away and I believe 100% that we can win there. We have a very good team and if everyone works hard, I know we can make it.

“I am happy to back where I call home and my focus as I await on the results from Wits is to help AFC Leopards’ perform well in all competitions,” added the winger loaned to AFC Leopards’ from Fisa Academy.

Were becomes the second player from Kenya Premier League to undergo trials at Bidvest Wits after Sofapaka defender Eugene Asike. The Batoto ba Mungu defender impressed during the trials but could not join the PSL side as they had already filled slots for foreign players.
